One Nation, One Election: Centre Forms Panel Headed By Ex President

The Central Government has taken a big step regarding One Nation-One Election. 

The government has formed a committee regarding this. This committee will be headed by former President Ramnath Kovind.

Taking an important step towards the ‘One Nation, One Election’ proposal, the Government of India has set up the committee to study the feasibility of the concept and present its findings. 

Former President Ramnath Kovind will lead this panel, which shows the seriousness with which the government is considering this.

There is speculation about the possibility of introducing a bill related to ‘one nation, one election’ during the upcoming special session of Parliament. 

There has been no official confirmation by government sources. 

The concept of ‘One Nation, One Election’ revolves around the idea of ​​synchronizing Lok Sabha and State Assembly elections to be held simultaneously across the country. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party have consistently advocated this approach, even finding a place in the party’s 2014 Lok Sabha election manifesto.

Historically India followed the practice of holding simultaneous elections until 1967, when four elections were held simultaneously. 

However, this practice was disrupted after some state assemblies were prematurely dissolved in 1968–69. 

For the first time in 1971, the Lok Sabha was dissolved a year ahead of schedule, leading to midterm elections. 

The current move to explore the concept of ‘One Nation, One Election’ is aimed at examining the feasibility and potential benefits of resuming simultaneous elections in the country.
